Strategic Sourcing Guide to Reproduction Equipment Procurement

Overview

A changing ecosystem within the Printing Machinery and Equipment market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Reproduction Equipment. Suppliers expect an increase in OPEX from rising prices of paper and ink which has resulted from rising input costs and to some extent, from shortening supply. Still, declining use of paper and intense competition will offset this incremental cost.

Availability of mobile print solutions where a buyer's employees can use any mobile device to send a document for printing from a remote location has transformed the procurement decisions within overall print management category.

Many large and mid-sized companies, especially from legal, financial, healthcare and real estate sectors are still heavily reliant on paper. Off late, there is a growing concern on security of documents - whether printed or stored digitally on a connected printing device. To address this concern, suppliers are coming forward with solutions that offer print and document security and monitoring services.

Reproduction Equipment Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Reproduction Equipment. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Engage suppliers that can offer digital print outputs in different dimensions to help increase the visual appeal of printed materials. Service providers should be capable of offering a wide range of dimensional digital print outputs, such as pop-up cubes and multi-dimensional shapes that can expand, fold, and explode, as this increases the visual appeal of the printed product.

Buyers should compare critical capabilities of suppliers based on security policies regarding materials provided, types of printers used, print color guarantees and TAT and onboard those that can offer a one-stop solution.

Buyers can use standard scorecards to evaluate service providers and offer necessary comments to rationalize the given scores. This will help document the decision-making process.

Risks in Reproduction Equipment procurement

Reproduction Equipment procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Reproduction Equipment procurement. Some examples include:


  • Commercial printing is considered as a manufacturing activity in many countries, and they are required to comply with various laws with respect to environment and human safety. However, non-adherence to any of the international or regional laws can impact the brand image of the supplier as well as result in hefty fines or removal of operating license
  • Suppliers depend on various third-party vendors for providing IT support, storage, and distribution of print materials and inputs. Any supply failure on third-party vendor's part may lead to inconsistency and delay in the supply of print materials to buyers. Moreover, these supply inconsistencies may compel suppliers to procure the product from other suppliers at the market price, which could be higher than the contract price. This result in an increase in procurement cost for suppliers
  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Reproduction Equipment
